I had a realtor tell me today that electricians are getting peeved at home inspectors for calling out double taps. Yet in the home that was inspected there were three double taps, with room for more breakers. I called it out and suggested the vendor repair prior to closing of title. The building permit was okay, and there was a ESA orange sticker on the panel, but no dates or anyother mark on it.
So what is the story, I like to think those electricians are wrong, because double taps lead to nuisance trips because you have doubled the load?
If the building permit is signed off, and the panel was done by an electrician is it right? I know the electricians are left to their good discretion, but I also know ESA inspectors only inspect a representitive number of new homes, not all of them, they entrust the electrican?
